The 74,170 students who graduated as engineers in 2008 did so with the help of more than 24,000 engineering faculty, about a 3-to-1 ratio. Roughly half of all faculty members are full professors. In general, the nation's engineering faculty ranks are slowly diversifying. Each minority group in the charts above is currently at its highest rate of representation.
